Sharing Animation - The Thomas Beale Cipher (Andrew Allen, 2010)

Sometimes I do share animations just for the technique and not for the story, and out of those most often it's because of the animation itself. This one I like the mood of it, the way it's told more than what it's telling. But also the technique is amazing.

Being an animator, I tend to dislike rotoscopy (wikipedia for that cute word), but this one is pretty awesome. It is rotoscoped, but it nevertheless makes us feel that we're in an animated movie, and that's what I like about it so much!

The story is based on an american legend (well legend seem to make it kinda even older, but it actually go back to the 1800s) that you can read about HERE (wiki as well). I guess it stands alone without knowing about the story.

One fun thing about this film is that, being about an undeciphered code, it has codes in itself. The director hid messages in the film, which I didn't lose much time trying to find, but I can recognise it's actually very cool!
HERE you can find the official website for the awarded film.

Here is The Thomas Beale Cipher by Andrew Allen.

This was my first share in Paris! That's why I've been so away from this, kinda busy times! Want to get back on track! See you with more soon!
